Harry Potter's final scenes revealed in new spy shots

05.25.2010

Alright, I'm going to have to coat this with a lot of spoiler warnings, as it will reveal either A) the end of the Harry Potter series for anyone who hasn’t read the books or B) how the end of the Harry Potter series will look onscreen if you HAVE read the books.

Turn back now.

Last chance.

OK then, loyal fan or person who doesn't give a shit. Read on.

What we have here is a spy shot from Brazilian Harry Potter fansite Oclumencia (they love it down there too), and it shows the final epilogue scene from the books being filmed. It’s a flash forward 19 years into the future, where everyone is all grown up, Harry is married to Ginny Weasely and they're seeing their kids off to Hogwarts.

We see young James Sirius and Albus Severus for the first time ever, and apparently in the future, kids still have stupid Justin Bieber haircuts. That is Daniel Radcliffe and Bonnie Wright wearing age makeup, as it appears they thought a casting change would have been too jarring.

As much as I loved the HP books, I never did buy the Harry-Ginny, Ron-Hermoine pairings that were forged near the end there. For me it was always Harry and Hermoine, and putting them with other people just felt forced.

Alright I’m going to stop talking about this before I start writing fan fiction. Click on the picture to head over to Oclumencia to see more spy shots from the scene.

Extra Tidbit: I almost titled this piece “Harry Potter’s final moments revealed” but I thought that would have been intentionally misleading, implying he dies.

and yet another fail potter, i´d think by now that someone had already realized that the potter movies are getting worse by the number, and this one doesn´t look like it´ll save the name of the series...
i agree with the folks saying the aging process on the actors looks bad, because it does, lame ass work, with all the money the´ve made with all the movies, you´d think they´d hire decent cgi people or make up artists, but it doesn´t look like they did :S

You're just a hater. You can take all your negativity and keep going with it because I completely agree with you.

They should leave this cheesy scene out of the movie to begin with. I agree that these movies have been garbage ever since Yates was involved. For the life of me I don't know why they let him direct more than one of these. I would much rather alfonso cuaran continued to direct.

From the get go, Ginny had a crush on Harry. And Harry's first crush was Cho Chang. Harry and Hermione never behaved very passionately toward one another. I never felt any love chemistry between them. And yes, I read the entire series. Then we have Ron and Hermione. They were constantly bugging each other, yet remained friends. For a boy and girl to be constantly on each other nerves is an obvious and classic indicator of attraction. Another indicate about the Harry-Ginny pairing is

This one isn't very solid, but it's a hint: Harry's mom is a redhead, while his dad has dark hair and glasses - an exact prototype of the Harry-Ginny pairing. Like I said, not very solid, but it's a hint. Going back to Ron and Hermione: Ron was kinda dumb, while Hermione was too smart. It practically screams "relationship".

None of the naysayers here seem to understand that what you see in these pictures is NOT what you will see in the film. The same technology that made Brad Pitt look 15 toward the end of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button is being used for this particular sequence in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II. They will look naturally aged in it.

I also wish people would stop whining about the adaptations. They are great and are actually much more faithful than The Lord of the Rings

I also wish people would stop whining about the adaptations. They are great and are actually much more faithful than The Lord of the Rings trilogy adaptations. It's a fact. I challenge anyone to read both the LOTR books and the Harry Potters, then watch the films and try to tell me that LOTR is more faithful.

2 Things

1) Actually I'm confused now, I didn't think they were that old, they were supposed to be what in the last one, 18 or 19? 19 years later would only be 38...I'm fucking 34 and I don't look old, no wrinkles or gray hair, even if they were 24 +19=43...is that what 43 year olds look like in England?

2) The ass hole who took these pictures are going to cause a ban on all cell phones and cameras on sets, and we'll never get spoilers, only studio produced pics... This is too big a movie to spoil

This is literally the last paragraph in the last book where Harry and Ginny ship their kid off to Hogwarts and that's how the book ends.

totally agree, actually thought about the other day, coming to the conclusion the movie would be better without this epilogue

Ok, I give this a "Bad Idea" rating only because that aged make up looks fucking cheesy. Bonnie and Dan still look like their current age, but with excruciatingly obvious make up plastered all over their obviously youthful faces.

I think J.K. should have definitely taken the approach that most conclusions to a multi-billion dollar franchise take, death of the main character(s).

Wow, what a terrible decision. Putting the original actors in makeup is going to look retarded.

Case in point: the above pictures. They look ridiculous. Ah well, ever since Yates came aboard, the HP movies have been total garbage.

Kind of ironic that one of their own is ruining their baby. But I'd expect no less from the incompetent hack that is David Yates.

RIP Harry Potter movie franchise...

C'mon dude, really? It was so freaking obvious that Harry and Hermione were NEVER going to end up together. Even if the Ginny/Harry pairing isn't obvious, the Ron/Hermione pairing is as obvious as a sledgehammer to the face.

never read the books

i've actually never read any of the HP books, nor do i intend to. so i guess i'm invulnerable to the effects of the movies sucking/differing from the books. I, however, was not invulnerable to the Jurassic Park movies...i read the books and was thus dissapointed with the movies.

These movies really hurt the books. You can see in the books how some things changed after they started making the movies. Ever wondered what happened to Peeves?

Good job

I like how they are using age makeup and not different actors. Also I never really read the whole series. Are their kids just named after Snape and Black? Or is there some kind of twilight zone thing going?

No, there's no type of Twilight Zone thing going on. Harry just happened to name his boys after Sirius, Dumbledore, and Snape, as a tribute to them.

Whatever

No biggie. Looks like how I expected. I'm pretty much over HP anyway, so this ain't no big deal.

And Paul gave plenty of spoiler warnings so I didn't "stumble" upon these pics.

Bad move indeed. Layers will be all over this. But leaving the original cast with aged make up is good call though.

You know...

I knew how it ended from the books, but there comes a point when spies like this need to just put the camera away. If you get to see it, well then boo hoo for you...but don't put it out there for the rest of the world to stumble on by accident and ruin it. Just poor class.

Uh-Oh!

This bad comment isn't reflected on the images, but the article itself. This is a BAD move.

I loved how the book ends, but somebody's gonna either a) lose their job over this, or b) the company will sue them over releasing these shots. Me thinks they were meant to be a surprise to the viewer. Now the big reveal of their future selves is ruined.
